If it runs with choke pulled out it's not getting enough fuel. Either the carburetor is dirty, or you have to open the hi speed screw. Another possibility is a bad fuel float or needle valve in the carb. If doesn't drop fully it won't let enough fuel into the bowl. Buy a carburetor kit and rebuild it and clean it. Find the model number on the B&S engine to get proper kit.

Tractor runs only when choke is pulled


A gas engine runs on a mixture of gas and air. Too much air, not enough fuel, and you have to decrease air to maintain balance.... Many things could cause this, clogged fuel filter, gas cap not venting, old/defective gas line, dirty carburetor.... If "popping" is involved, there is too much water in the gas.

Cleaned gas and changed fuel filter. Mower only


There are a number of things that can cause this, depending on the engine fitted. Assuming a Briggs & Stratton V-twin...

Check that the carb solenoid under the float bowl is connected, has battery voltage when the ignition switch is at 'RUN', and is functional.

As a quick check, with the engne OFF, turn key to 'RUN' there should be an audiable 'click' from the carb if the solenoid is working.

After that, check that the fuel pump is delivering fuel (disconnect output, and crank engine). SHould be a good flow.
